For what I know, if white follows 7.Nb3
7...Qb4+ 8.Bd2 Qb6
and 7...Qd8 Nd4
Are just straight draws so gotta mind who you're playing this against.
7...Qc7 8.Qd2 Nf6 9.Nc3
Normally white would have to worry about Ng4 at some point, but with the queen on c7 Bf4 will set up c5 and greatly nullify the whole manouvre.

Besides that there is of course 7...Qd8 8.Nc3
Where black ought to take on c3, if the queen isn't proveked to d2 early, the essential Ng4 resource will again get stifled. Certainly need to handle these lines with care.

I'm not sure where 7...Qd8 8.Qd2 Nf6 9.Nc3 Ng4
leads, but on a vibes basis it fits the direct nature of this line better than 9...d6

This line is recommended, and covered in great detail, in the Chessable course 'Lifetime Repertoires: Accelerated Dragon' by Kamil Plichta. I'd quite like to give this a try myself, but I haven't had an opportunity yet.

On a historical note, 5...Qb6 6. Nb3 Bg7 was given once upon a time (by transposition) as leading to a clear advantage for White, and later to a slight one. A game I half-remembered is Keene-Timman 1974.

Hi, do you mean 5...Qb6, or 5...Bg7 6.Be3 Qb6 ?
The latter is respectable (I think), while the former looks shaky after 6.Nb5 when Black doesn't have Qa5+ in view of Bd2/c3. So Black will soon play Qd8 and a6, which looks like a wasted move at this stage. Maybe there's a nice idea, can't tell.
